Dickies is a brand of workwear clothing that was founded in 1922 in Bryan, Texas, by C.N. Williamson and E.E. "Colonel" Dickie. The brand started as a bib overall company and quickly expanded into other categories such as shirts, pants, jackets, and coveralls.

Throughout its history, Dickies has been known for producing high-quality, durable workwear that can withstand the demands of manual labor. Through the 1960s and 1970s, the brand became popular among skateboarders who appreciated its rugged style and affordability.

Dickies has a long history of supporting skateboarding and has assembled a formidable team of professional skateboarders from around the world, including Ronnie Sandoval, Jamie Foy, Dylan Jaeb, Guy Mariano and Jake Hayes.
